During the Ascension Day (while the statues of the three Kings appear on clock tower, each beat of the hours) with a ritual in s. Nicol├▓ di Lido, Venice is reminiscent of the "marriage of the sea" when the doge, aboard the Bucintoro, launched his ring into the sea, saying, "we'll get married, my sea, as a token of eternal Dominion┬╗. For some years now, also comes the now famous Vogalonga reminiscent of boats of all kinds (including large cargo boats, heavy with 14-20 peate oars) for this non-competitive ride of 30 km in the lagoon.
